Google’s Pixel event is only a day away and we’ve already seen plenty of leaks, a review, and even a store selling the phones. With the full specifications revealed, there's not much left to speculate about, but that doesn't mean the leaks are stopping. Now we also have confirmation of the first Pixel 3 accessory spotted in the wild. Read More
Google always has at least one "fun" color for its Pixel phones in addition to the standard white and black. However, those colors have often been exclusive to Verizon. We don't know if that will be the case this year, but we do know what the rumored "Sand" Pixel 3 and 3XL will look like. You can see them right here. Read More
Prior to today, if you broke something on your Pixel phone and you wanted it fixed through an official channel, you'd have to go to the widely-known uBreakiFix or Puls (a phone repair startup). An in-house mail-in repair service, dubbed 'Repair Center,' has just been added to the Google Store. So if you want Google itself to fix your Pixel, you're now in luck. Read More
We're less than three weeks away from Google's October 9 NYC event, but the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leaks haven't showed any signs of stopping. This time around, we've got two separate leaks to show. Some more in-the-flesh photos of the Pixel 3 XL have surfaced on Twitter, and Evan Blass has posted a side-by-side shot of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL renders. Read More
Smaller phones are much harder to come by these days, regardless of whether you're using Android or iOS. With the Pixel 3 in particular, and the fact that it's arriving nearly a month after the launch of the considerably larger iPhone XS and XS Max, and months after even larger phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note9, Google has the opportunity to appeal to those who prefer to wield pocketable devices. But to do so successfully, and to keep those of us with smaller mandibles interested in its hardware, it has to do it right.
I’ve lived the last year with the Pixel 2 with a 5-inch display as my daily driver. Read More
We're exactly two weeks out from the October 9th Google event and unless the crazy conspiracy theories end up being true, there might not be too many surprises coming our way. Images of the Pixel 3 phones have leaked left, right, and center, and now we're being treated to the live wallpapers that will ship with them. Read More
It almost goes without saying that Google's operational security is not so good lately. The Pixel 3 (and especially) 3 XL have leaked repeatedly and in great detail over the last few weeks. There are basically no surprises left for the Google event on October 9th, but now there's a new cache of images just in case you wanted them. Read More
The barrage of Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL leaks stopped for a week or two there, but we've got some more photos of Google's upcoming phones. This time around, both are pictured next to each other in some pretty official-looking press renders, dressed in Google's very nice fabric cases. Read More
The third-generation Google Pixel leaks continue. At this point, the company doesn't seem to have anything hidden from us — unless you believe the wild conspiracy theories about a mystical notch-less Ultra Pixel. Even Google seems to have given up on hiding things and, in a teaser for the new Pixels on its Japanese site, has revealed a potentially third aqua/mint color. Read More
For years, fans and analysts alike have clamored for Apple to release a proper "mid-range" iPhone. Today, they finally got what they wanted - sort of. The new iPhone Xr represents an entirely new direction for the iPhone lineup, and one that poses a serious threat to "flagship" tier Android phones that lurk anywhere above its $749 MSRP.
While you may be thinking "there's nothing 'mid-range' about $749," be reminded that the iPhone Xs and Xs Max cost $1000 and $1100, respectively, making the all-new Xr a fairly significant price cut in Apple terms. It's also not even the smallest iPhone: the Xr features a 6.1" LCD (the Xs is a 5.8" OLED, the Max is 6.5") that Apple claims will wipe the floor with any other in terms of color accuracy, and given their history, I believe them.
